Re: Windows installer, NSIS version

Yes and no. I've been working on this workaround, and it's quite
difficult to implement.

Plus it means forking the NSIS implementation in CMake to a local
version :( It's possible I can do this workaround in a generic way (this
is what I intend) and get this patch into CMake, which would help a lot
for us.

Damn, looks like my intended solution isn't possible :(

I came up with another one, though. I want the installer to add the database files to a separate directory and copy those to the main directory at the end. This way, the files aren't covered by the uninstaller. I can later add a page to the uninstaller asking if they should be removed too, but the main point is to avoid them being silently deleted.
